Japanese Lingerie Brand N.SENS

images via N.SENS photos by Jack Alibaba, model Rachel

N.SENS is a lingerie brand recently established in Japan and designed by Seina Takasaki.  The brand produces intimates that skillfully blend Japanese aesthetics with French sophistication.  The items featured here fall into two groups; Lilith and Ninfea.  Lilith is the more glamorous group featuring bras and panties with delicate lace overlay.  Ninfea appears geared toward a younger, more playful customer. 
Though N.SENS appears to have limited distribution at the moment, we expect to see the brand to gain a worldwide presence in the forthcoming months.  We can't wait to get our hands on that gorgeous Lilith set featured at the top of the post!

Arsenic et Vieilles Dentelle - Belgium Lingerie Label

Arsenic et Vieilles Dentelles / fashion images by Laeticia Bica

Arsenic et Vieilles Dentelles (A&VD) is a Belgium-based lingerie brand established in 2013.  Its concept is one that we love at Faire Frou Frou and in that it "likes to imagine that the Lingerie is more than a clothing, it's a second skin, it's a real fashion accessory which acts as a beauty product with which women can compose, can have fun, express their personality and being able to reveal their own sensuality."  The designer behind the brand is Laure Hurlet, who utilizes her family workshop in Belgium creating all natural fabric pieces.  The collection featured here is called "Eat Your Little Pea" and features simple, yet provocative designs (each named after a pea, such as Mushy Pea Garter, Split Pea Thong, Black-Eyed Pea Bra, etc.).  You can learn more about A&VD by visiting their online boutique

Carine Gilson - Luxury Lingerie Fall/Winter 2013

images via Carine Gilson

How could we possibly overlook our favorite pastime on our blog, which is featuring the latest designs from Carine Gilson.  Each season we think Carine's work is the height of luxurious perfection, and then another group comes along and 'wows' us.  The Fall/Winter 2013 collection has a definite Japanese influence, or at least that's what we're seeing.  Granted, Carine Gilson has consistently featured decadent kimono in every season, but the structure and simplicity of this season has a more precise Asian flair.  
Looking through these images makes us feel pretty lucky that we kept a few Carine Gilson pieces for ourselves when we used to carry the brand at our boutique.  The quality and beauty is just as swoon-worthy as ever, and just as much of a splurge.  Is there any pricey piece of lingerie you own that you just had to have?  We'd love to hear!

Olivia von Halle - Fall/Winter 2013 Shanghai-Inspired

The Fall/Winter 2013 collection for Olivia von Halle has an editorial campaign that equals the  decadent inspiration for the designs.   Inspired by the Art Deco movement in Shanghai, the collection includes satin silk pajama sets in rich jewel tones and introduces the new satin kimono style.  The now-famous Coco style PJs (as inspired by Coco Chanel) is back this time in an ivory crepe de chine with purple piping.  We love that Olivia worked with top Chinese fashion photographer Ele Jin to create this images along with the impeccable styling of ELLE China's Senior Fashion Editor Leaf Greener (it doesn't hurt to have top Chinese supermodels Miao Bin Si and Gao Ying wearing the goods either!).  
We are pleased to share that several of the Autumn/Winter looks are available at Faire Frou Frou!  Shop the new arrivals here.

We are thrilled beyond thrilled to finally represent *the* lady of burlesque Dita Von Teese at Faire Frou Frou!  After much anticipation, and what marks the perfect partnership, the vintage-inspired lingerie brand Von Follies by Dita Von Teese is finally available for purchase at our boutique.  We are big fans of Dita and adore her style, and proudly carry the collection of lingerie that is the hands-on result of her modern interpretation of vintage intimates.  According to the Von Follies team "the range combines sophistication and sensuality with glamorous touches such as grosgrain and velvet ribbons, delicate eyelash lace, and control mesh to give the essence of the sultry 1950's pin up girl".
We are rolling out new collections every month or so at our boutique.  The first to make their Los Angeles "brick & mortar" store debut are Her Sexellency and Leading Lady.  Our favorite Madame X group arrives in September, and then plenty more AMAZING styles that haven't yet been released to the public are arriving through early 2014!  Trust us, if you like what you see here it gets even better for Winter 2014 (ie Her Sexellency coming out with more style options and also coming out in red!).

We suggest you start your shopping here (and it's also in our Studio City lingerie boutique).

And strictly for bragging purposes, from Dita herself!
